Cleaning up tonight, I found this hand written post-it note from Jim.

I was having FI issues and suspected the ECU. About a week before he passed away, Jim dropped an ECU off at Matt's in Frederick so I could test my ECU theory.

I just "laminated" the post-it with packing tape and it will ride in my glove box from now on.

I imagine so but I didn’t take any sort of inventory when I was there. Too much stuff. But come no matter what.

Great. It will be a fun GTG even if you don’t need anything for the 914. Good size crowd has pm’d, emailed, text and noted on this thread.

Like there isn’t always something you need for a 914. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Epoxy sealed my gas tank over the weekend. Put it back together outside the car last night. Need to re-run fuel lines under the tank tonight and put the tank back in. On track for being able to drive the 914 to jim's!

Was looking through my phone photos last night (looking for photos I missed that had my dad in them) and found some I saved of Jim.

Also re-linking Jim Kelly's video of the CIS 2.0....I think my dad took a video on his phone, but I haven't looked at his phone in a long time (but it is nice to hear his 'woooo' in the background)



I'll be in the new-to-me family truckster in case I find some parts and can load em up.

So, A BIG Thank you to Adam from Unobtanium. Adam made a very generous (unsolicited & appreciated) donation to the party. With it, I'll be purchasing a big tray of pulled pork, baked beans, mac & cheese and potato salad from my favorite little BBQ joint to bring down to the party. We will supplement it with hot dogs, chips, soda ect. If you have something nutritious you'd like to bring, feel free to share.

Adam also sent down a box of giveaways for attendees. So again, a big THANK YOU! Adam - Unobtanium. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/first.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)

Thanks for posting those pictures! Its a total shame that engine never made into into his car. (I think - did it?)

When Jim and rod powder coated all the orange bits, Jim did a bunch more then he needed of injector clamps. I needed some, so at that party he gave me 4 of his spares. So I have some "Jim Orange" color in my engine bay - if you look.

GLWS, Jim was a good man. Hopefully you'll get Top Dollar! Were all those items shipped to the east coast to sale? Seems an added expense, if so. Will this be locals only or an online auction that runs concurrently?

The party and sale is at Barbara McLeod’s house in Vienna, VA. It’s a one day event. There isn’t an online sale at this time. Getting top dollar isn’t as important as getting it all sold and into the hands of 914 enthusiasts, while remembering that we want Barbara to benefit from Jim’s 914 passion.



Mark

I hope to make for this event.
Thanks for being so kind

THANK YOU ALL! This is Jim's wife Barbara. It will be nice to meet many of you on August 4th. Mark has been great helping me to figure out what to do with Jim's TREASURES!

Tomorrow he will be gone 3 years. Hard to imagine!
How he loved his 914's. When we were in High School he dreamed of having a 911. One of the guys in his band got a new one for his 16th birthday... if you can imagine! Anyway, Jim coveted one from that time on. After totaling a 944 he got a settlement that allowed him to buy his 911SC. That car was NOT his favorite!?! He preferred the 914's since he could work on them. He built that garage for his babies and would have tried to get more cars if he had an even bigger garage!! AND... he spent MOST of his spare time either working at Home Depot to get money for the cars or out in the garage working on the cars or on this forum talking about cars. Needless to say I was a bit jealous.

He was out in the garage the day he passed. How he longed to clean up that 6 and put it in the Orange 914.

I've waited all this time not being able to think about parting with the things he loved. There are so many parts that it gives me anxiety to go into the garage and storage room.
I know that he would be happy knowing some of you will put the parts to use.
Looking forward to meeting you and hoping to find a home for much of the Porsche parts.
We will just have this event that one day but I am happy to have those of you who can't attend come by sometime to see if he has anything you need. I'm not going anywhere for now. Thanks, Barbara
